    Jump higher, run faster

    I can't gain any height to my jump or speed to my sprint. I'm really strong in the legs. I do sqauts with 315lbs and even push the weight up fast to stimulate explosive power, but when I go out to sprint with someone or try to jump I'm just as slow as before and still can't jump. I guess that's just what happens when you're a whiteboy. Does anyone know some good exercises to increase speed in the legs and jumping height?

    First off, jumping is not about how much you can lift. It's about explosive power. It's how fast to accelerate your weight. An example is like when you do your squats. You may want to increase the weight for your squat just a little bit, and then work on going from the down position and "exploding" upward into the up position.

    For getting faster, you're going to need to do some speed work and develop a small amount of stamina. Hill sprints and farkleks can help this.

    Get coached in proper body mechanics for running and jumping.

    After that, it's your sucky genes dude.

    I remember guys in jr high (back when we were all untrained), of comparable size, who could do more pull-ups, push-ups, and who were just plain stronger all around. Yet I could still woop them when it came to sprinting and throwing things. A lot comes down to just how you're put together.

    A weighted vest comes in handy.
    Running and jumping with a weight vest COULD help you get what you are looking for.
    Good, solid body mechanics are essential, never forget good form makes for good technique and great forms makes for great technique.

    Once you know how to jump, the best way to improve your jumping, is by jumping.

    Get the book called "Sports speed". It's an incredible book that gives a full program for increasing speed. It covers several different training strategies, including plyometrics, over-speed training, and other techniques.
    It's an awesome book.

    Yes, especially if you don't train with weights, the load can be pretty traumatic. Speaking of training with weights, do you? A basic well-rounded program, followed several weeks later with Olympic-style lifts such as clean and jerk, has shown to be effective in improving lower-body explosiveness. Plyos are good too, upper and lower. One overlooked area is the hamstrings; most people aren't very strong there, and once they do get serious on that, their running speed takes off. Good luck.

    Considering the type of training methods most advocated around here, that statement strikes me as humorous.

    Plyometrics get results, but if you aren't smart about it, injury is not only possible, it is virtually guaranteed.
